Ok, now when I copied it, #98 wasn't there... I smell a conspiracy.

Thanks for sharing, Von! You shark-eater!

Von said...

alas, I do not believe there was a #98 on Blue Girl's page....

Smut Clyde said...

What does an 'exotic bicycle' look like? Elliptical wheels?

Jennifer said...

I think it looks like your bike-on-man action post.

Shannon Erin said...

You've never been to a drive-in theater?

If you want to go to one, I'll gladly make it happen!

Shannon Erin said...

Also, ever been on top of the Sears Tower? Then you've done 154.

Von said...

SC, I had the exact same thought when I first read that one!!
Shannon, Nope, never to a drive in!! LEt's go!!!

I had an Apple IIgs with two 5 1/4 inch floppy drives and two 3 1/3 inch floppy drives.

Also, I wear my sunglasses at night.

blue girl said...

Yes! What is this #98 situation?! I'll have to go check and see if Jacquandor had a #98 and I accidentally erased it.

Von! You have to go to a drive-in! They're so fun! Also, why did you get kicked out of a movie theater? Did you sneak in your own popcorn?? :)

Smut Clyde said...

Everyone should invent their own #98.
#98. Performed an autopsy on your own pet. Or parent.

blue girl said...

Von is missing #99! And Jennifer, kudos to your eagle eye. I didn't even notice #98 was missing till ZRM showed up with his coded comment.

Von said...

LOL. Make my own #99?
Ah, the mind it wanders!
I'd LOVE to go to a drive in, we'll see if Shannon delivers on her offer.
Yep, got kicked out of that vampire movie with Tom Cruise. Actually, we decided it would be fun to smoke in the theater. Whoops.

#99: Released red balloons over Germany, triggering a near nuclear exchange.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I prefer the one I posted at BG's: 99: befriend a zombie.

Von said...

Hey, I can bold that one!
I'm making that my #98

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Good stuff! I always like these kind of posts. You've lived a good life thus far with many more bold numbers to follow...
